Default uninstall/Reinstall

how do you uninstall if game resides at Steam?or can I do it off the DVD?
I feel I have to execute a reinstall in order to reset controls back to original default -- unless there is a simpler way.
I have lost the bubble on changes I made to Warthog and now there are a lot of bindings that do not work and I can't track back. It would have been simpler if I could have printed out the original control bindings as a worksheet but I couldn't figure that out

If and only if you are absolutely sure you want to wipe your settings clean, do the following:

Go to the game root folder (steam\steamapps\common\il-2 sturmovik cliffs of dover) and delete the conf.ini file.

Then, go to documents\1c softclub folder and do the same.

Finally, right click on the CoD icon in steam, select properties, find the button that says "verify cache integrity" and click on it.

Steam will check your installation for missing files, in this case it will download a fresh copy of the conf.ini file you deleted and place it in the game root. This is your reference copy of the file, like a "blank form" sheet.

Once you run the sim again, it will make a copy of conf.ini back into the documents\1c softclub folder. This instance of the file is your "photocopied form sheet to fill out", all changes you make in the relevant settings are saved to this one.

Once you have remapped your controls from scratch, save a copy for future use: in the same options screen where you define keybindings there's a "save as" button. Clicking it will give you a pop.up window asking you where to save your personalized controls. Choose a location and give it a suitable name (for example, mycontrols.ini) then press save.

From that point on, if you mess up your controls you can just click the "load" button in the keymapping options, navigate to your saved file and load it into the sim.

Keep in mind that for the save/load functions to work you need to have the aero/desktop composition enabled in win 7/vista. This is because the save/load functions give you a windows pop-up window (much like the kind of window you get when saving a text document) and in order for that to be displayed on top of the game interface aero must be on.

Hello....I can't figure this out due to my ignorance of Steam. I want to 100% clean all my files for IL-2 Cliffs of Dover including Patches and Add ons. Can I just uninstall from steam? Do i have to uninstall steam? Do I have to manually delete all files from Steam folders from Program Files (86x) and User Document files?

This is why I like games with uninstall features.

My problem is I installed the team fusion patch a couple of days ago...then install the Desastersoft Add on Fighter Aces Adolf Galland....but cant get it to work. So I want to start from scratch..... any help??
